SHIFT Enterprise Academy

"A vehicle for economic mobility"
WELCOME,

Team SHIFT started as an idea in 2010 as part of my Senior Internship class at Morehouse College. Then, in 2011, as a graduate student at Texas A&M, I entered the SHIFT model into A&M’s Mays Business School Ideas Contest. The SHIFT concept was selected as a Finalist, which allowed me to present the idea in front of a panel of investors. Using a $500 seed investment after the competition, Team SHIFT, Inc was incorporated as a Texas not-for-profit organization during the summer of 2011.

​

Since then, by the grace of God SHIFT has impacted the lives of hundreds of youth through our 5-part lecture series, SHIFT Enterprise Academy, college preparedness workshops, young entrepreneur seminars, and mentorships. As we evolve into our next stage of growth, and I reflect on previous successes of SHIFT I am most thankful for my partners, supporters, and the SHIFT Agents who continue to believe in the SHIFT approach.

​

It was all a dream.
